As'salamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

I did not know where to put the quotes by various learned people and scholars, so inshaAllah going to put them up in this thread. May they have an impact on our souls and manifest themselves in our actions. Ameen.

Fi Amanillah
UmmT




Part from the days where you used to do as you wish
And restrain your soul when the decree of Allah is ordained
And don’t despair over the events of the past
Fore none of the events of the dunya were ever meant to remain
And be a man who is firm upon his affairs
And whose character is that of pardoning and nobility
And there is sadness or happiness that is continuous
Just as there is there is no comfort or pain
If you are a person who is satisfied with what he has
Then you and the owner of all possessions are equal
And upon he whose open valley death descends upon
Then there is no earth or sky to protect you from it
And the earth of Allah is vast but
When the ordainment of Allah descends even the open valley congests.


[Imam Shafi]

Ash-Shâfi‘î (rahimahullâh) said,
“Whoever spread gossip for you spreads gossip against you.
Whoever relates tales to you will tell tales about you.
Whoever when you please him says about you what is not in you,
when you anger him will say about you what is not in you.”

You possess a diamond called Islam.
Don’t hide it away -
share the light of it with others.
[Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki]


The eye of the heart, though closed in fallen man, is able to take in a glimmering of light and this is faith. But anway of living causes a covering like rust to accumulate over the heart so that it cannot sense the Divine origin of God’s message. [Martin Lings (Abu Bakr Sirajuddin) ]

MashaAllah this one is wonderful:

Never do I argue with a man with a desire to hear him say what is wrong, or to expose him and win victory over him. Whenever I face an opponent in debate I silently pray - O Lord, help him so that truth may flow from his heart and on his tongue, and so that if truth is on my side, he may follow me; and if truth be on his side, I may follow him. [Imam Al-Shafi’i]

that is soooooooo true, unfortunately. everybody is convinced they are right, and all others are wrong, to the extent that muslims begin to call each other kuffar, when it is neither their place, nor their duty

one quote that i really like is the one from my sig
"If I am what you say I am, may God forgive me. If I am not what you say I am, may God forgive you."
i heard this at a conference by a sheikh (but i forgot his name) ..
and it's used in the context if someone says*** something bad about you... think about it... and read the statement...

(sorry i forgot to write "says" in the sentence above)

As'salamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

BarakaAllahu feequm. And you're right brother Yaseen, I think veryone thinks that (or most of us think we are right and everyone else is wrong, maybe both parties are right).

Jazakillahu khairan Mz A :) It reminds me of a saying where someone praises you and you are meant to reply....

"Oh Allah, do not call me to account for what they say and forgive me for what they have no knowledge of [and make me better than they imagine]."
(Al-Bukhari al-adab al-Mufrad)



Each of your breaths is a priceless jewel, since each of them is irreplaceable and, once gone, can never be retrieved. Do not be like the deceived fools who are joyous because each day their wealth increases while their life shortens. What good is an increase in wealth when life grows ever shorter? Therefore be joyous only for an increase in knowledge or in good works, for they are your two companions who will accompany you in your grave when your family, wealth, children and friends stay behind. [Imam Ghazali ]
